Console error: -canOpenURL: failed for URL: "dbapi-2://1/connect" - error: "(null)"

When using SwiftyDropbox and calling

Dropbox.authorizeFromController(self)

I see the following error in the console: -canOpenURL: failed for URL: "dbapi-2://1/connect" - error: "(null)"

I observed this issue in the PhotoWatch app as well as my own app. Is there a fix for this issue?

The error:"(null)" indicates that this is working properly. Are you seeing any broken functionality?

This is related to new protections in iOS 9, but as long as you've set up the SDK as documented, which is sounds like you have, this log message can be safely ignored.

Ok, now that makes sense. I didn't understand the message. Can Dropbox fix the message so it's more meaningful?
